.WALES Domain Sales
What is the .wales domain name?
The .wales domain name is a new generic top-level domain (gTLD) that will sit alongside familiar web endings like .com and.uk.
The new .wales domain name will allow businesses and individuals in Wales to strengthen their online identities and make it easier for users to search for them.
The new .wales will mean that internet users are familiar with the Welsh language address of every website.
It's the online home for Wales and anyone with an interest in Welsh life, history, and culture; or great Welsh businesses; or who wants to create something Welsh associated with their existing website.
Not only that, but it could be your key to attracting more visitors to your site by reaching people looking for information specifically about Wales - not just people searching for your business words such as 'cake' or 'coffee'.
People interested in .wales include native welsh speakers; organizations and companies working with wales or promoting welsh business; people living in wales; people in welsh communities in the uk or abroad (such as expatriate Welsh speakers); and anyone interested in welsh language, history, music.
Who is eligible to register a .wales name?
Any business, organization, or individual that has an affiliation with Wales can apply to register a .wales domain. All of the usual rules and restrictions apply and if you don't meet them then your application will not be successful.
What are some registration restrictions?
Domains can be registered under the .wales domain for a maximum of 2 years before they need to be renewed.
There is no age requirement and you do not have to operate in Wales, but your request will need to demonstrate some element of relationship with Wales such as an existing Welsh language website; an existing physical presence in Wales (for example, a branch or base); or you are planning on creating a site specifically about Welsh life, history, culture or showcasing great Welsh businesses.
Why choose a .wales domain name?
There are several reasons why you might choose to use a .wales domain name for your website:
1. It will help people search specifically for your business and its location if your customers want an online map directory - it's easier than remembering the Welsh word for 'cake'!
2. If you have a Scottish Gaelic or Irish Gaelic website then registering a .wales domain may be the best way to attract more visitors by showing that your site is also available in English as well as those other languages, which can better improve local search rankings on major search engines such as Google and Bing.
3. You'll show everyone that you're proud of our nation, and our – not just inside Wales but worldwide.
4. By registering a .wales domain you'll make it easier for people to find your website, and you can include a link back to your main site from the .wales homepage if you wish.
5. You will be able to reach more potential customers in Wales and beyond with an online presence in their language of choice when searching for businesses like yours using the internet on mobile devices or laptop computers
6. And finally... Because many Welsh speakers own technology such as smartphones, tablets, etc., there is every chance that they would prefer to search directly in their preferred language - rather than having to remember English words like 'cake'!
